Pat the dough into a small circle and cut into 6 or 8 triangles. Brush the top of the scones with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar before baking.

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (3 average-sized bananas)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

Grease and flour 1 large loaf pan (9 1/4 X 5 1/4-inch) or whatever combination of pans you’d like. This recipe also works great made into muffins or 2 smaller loaf pans. Make sure you don’t put too much batter in one pan or it will take too long to cook the middle and the outside will get really dark.

Make your own buttermilk by putting half a tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar into a liquid measuring cup. Then fill to the 1/2 cup mark and let sit for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, cream softened butter and sugar together. Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla until the batter is well mixed. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and soda. Mix until well combined. Divide batter into greased and floured bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
